Since Essie has joined the ranks at Boots, I've been paying a lot more attention to the brand and putting together a wish,it's of polishes I want. The shades are gorgeous and they do mini versions too which is perfect because how often do you actually finish a polish? Well, I have a couple of times but with my stash growing by the day, it does seem unlikely that I'm going to hit the bottom of a bottle any time soon.
I first saw 'Bikini So Teeny' on Anna of ViviannaDoesMakeup but didn't think I needed it because I had something similar (Filthy Gorgeous 'Minx') but I was wrong. Although the FG shade is pretty, this Essie number is in a league of its own so I picked it up from Olympia Beauty with the other polishes in the Summer collection in a little mini box of good stuff.
Bikini So Teeny is a cornflower blue shade that has caught quite a few eyes since I've been wearing it. It's the perfect combo of last minute summer goodness and standard gloomy Britishness, plus it wears pretty well and I managed to get a good few days out of it before it started to chip and crack so it's a good polish all around. I can't wait to crack out the green shade from the collection because it's got a hint of murkiness to it which I quite like.
Are there any Essie shades that I really need to have? I've decided that I want to buy Ballet Slippers and Mademoiselle but what are the other 'must-have' shades? I've already got Body Language which i highly recommend everyone own.
You can buy Essie from larger Boots stores or online from BeautyBay.
Until next time...
